As an interesting aside. In a previous discussion Migueldiaz showed us this picture, where interestingly he noted that: "the origin is being attributed to philippines by the museum (victor balaguer)."

So either PERFECT copies were made in the Phillipines, or these were popular there as imports.
I suspect the latter as Albacete was a centre for knife making.
